Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by conducting an online search for tilers in your area. Ask if the tiler can conduct a consultation through a video call instead of a traditional site visit to limit exposure. It’s also wise to confer about the current state of the pandemic and ensure that it’s safe to complete the project now. If not, discuss postponing for another time. 

Can you tile over drywall?

Yes, it is possible to lay tile over drywall. If you’re looking to lay a tile backsplash in your kitchen, you can certainly do it yourself — but hiring a professional may save time. 

Before you tile over your drywall, make sure the wall has a smooth surface with no bumps or cracks. Start by using a compound to seal up any crevices, then sand the drywall and clean up the dust. Then, lay a coat of primer on the drywall to get it ready for your tile. 

How long does it take to lay tile?

Depending on the pro’s expertise, the size of the project and its complexity, the time it takes to lay the tile will vary. For some projects, it may take a few hours to lay tile while others will require several days of work. 

When planning a tiling project for your home, get free estimates from the best tile contractors near you and ask them how long it would take them to complete your job.  

Can you tile over tile floors?

Yes, you can lay tile over existing tile floors (or a backsplash). Although it’s generally best to pull up your old flooring, you can simply place tiles on top if your existing floor is in good condition.

Before you start, examine your tiles carefully for mold, cracks or unevenness. Provided none of these is an issue, you can begin laying your new tiles. 

But if this is your first time laying tile — or if you want to ensure that the job is done right — save time by hiring a tiling professional near you

What do you need to lay tile?

If you’re laying a new tile floor, you’ll likely need an assortment of tools and supplies, including (but not limited to):

  • Tile
  • Tile adhesive
  • Tile trim
  • Tile spacers
  • Underlayment
  • Sealer
  • Caulk
  • Level
  • Goggles
  • Gloves
  • Trowel
  • Carpenter’s square
  • Grout
  • Sponge
  • Tape measure
  • Etc.

If you don’t have all of the tools, equipment and skills necessary to lay tile in your home, consider hiring one of the best tile contractors in your area.

Which is better: porcelain or ceramic tile?

Porcelain tiles are more durable and have a longer lifespan than ceramic tile. If you're installing flooring in an area with high traffic or lots of heavy furniture, porcelain tiles will look better for longer. They’re also very easy to clean and maintain. Porcelain is also very water-resistant and can hold up in places like bathrooms and rooms with jacuzzis, hot tubs, or swimming pools. 

But if the cost is your top priority, ceramic tiles are often more affordable. Ceramic tile prices start as low as $0.45 or $0.50 per square foot, and porcelain tile starts at $3 per square foot.

Does tile flooring increase home value?

Having a tile floor may increase your home’s value, but it might depend on the type of tile you install and the trends in the real estate market.

Chat with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out what types of home repairs and remodeling projects you should tackle before you put your home on the market. It might make sense to add new tiles when renovating your kitchen or bathroom, for example. 

If you decide to include new tiling in your home remodeling project, contact the best tile installation pros near you to get free estimates.

What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?

Ceramic and porcelain are some of the more popular types of tile, but there are a few differences: 

Porcelain Tile

Ceramic Tile

More durable, have a longer lifespan

Cheaper, easier to install

Better for high-traffic areas

Recommended for interior floors, walls

Slightly more water-resistant

Softer, easier to cut

What is the best tile?

There are many different types of tile to choose from, and they all have unique benefits when it comes to aesthetics, longevity, durability and safety.

Porcelain and ceramic tile are often popular in kitchens and bathrooms because they are water-resistant, making them a go-to choice for floors and backsplashes. Marble tile is also a great choice for kitchen and bathroom floors, and granite tiles are popular for countertops. 

Consult with a tile installation professional to figure out what type of tile you should install in your home.

How can I find out if a tiler is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To identify essential service providers during the pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website to find a list of recommendations.

A list of national recommendations can be found at CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. This service lists 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that are approved to continue operation during the pandemic. But note not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

In my search for someone to tile my bathroom JG Tiling responded immediately! Sent pictures and was able to get an estimate all within an hour from starting my search! He was professional and did an excellent job. He also recommended someone to install my shower door. I would absolutely hire him for any future tiling jobs.

These guys do it all. They are very knowledgeable and professional. The speedy service wasn’t bad at all either. I had them install a tile backsplash in my kitchen, hang light fixtures and replace a fence.

Had a very positive experience with Southern Kitchen and Bath . He was at our home in a little over an hour the day we called him . He measured and gave us an estimate , which was very reasonable . It was a small job , but he was there the very next day , and did a beautiful job on the porcelain tile he installed . We liked him so much , we have purchased more of the same tile , and will call him back to do kitchen , living room and a bedroom. Highly recommend .

Miguel and his brother Carlos were very professional and polite. They installed 12”x24” tile in our Church’s new room addition. Not only did they do a great job, they also went the extra mile and leveled the complete floor. We are very satisfied and plan on using them again.

Elite Floors DFW was absolutely amazing to work with. Hilda was responsive and willing to answer every question I had, which was a lot considering this was my first tile installation in my first house. She was kind, worked with my schedule, and kept me informed every step of the way. Thank you Elite Floors!

Lowell did a great job removing and installing backsplash in our kitchen. He was always very punctual and had attention to detail with the black grout we picked which we know was a pain. We roughly had 35 sq ft of tiling that was done that included complete removal of old backsplash, reinstalling green sheet rock, and tiling the new backslash for $800. He was always very responsive and didn’t try to rush the job. He even came back for touch ups (black grout is hard to see) even though we already paid him. It took approximately 1.5 days and they cleaned up the work area well on both days.

Real easy to work with. Whenever I had a concern about something, it was explained thoroughly. We were concerned about price as we were on a budget but it was affordable yet professionally done. We had both bathrooms and laundry room tiled as well as have new toilets and vanities installed. A much need improvement. Attached are a couple of photos. When the time comes we will be using Floor n Services again for other projects.

JJ did a beautiful job tiling my fireplace wall. I am pleased with the results! He was professional and is an all around good natured guy who knew his work! He also went the extra mile to remove the old mantel and do some extra caulking around our hearth which the previous installers did a horrible job. I appreciate his time, knowledge and genuinely kind nature. Looking ford to working with him on my next project.

Do not hire this guy. It took him 4 days (2 days of which he left at noon) to lay down tile (314 squ ft). He measured and stated that the area was 490squ ft, but only to have to return 14 boxes to Floor & Decor, that tells you how accurate his measuring was! He stapled the baseboards back Half-ass.....they were not stapled all the way...He grouted but did not seal the grout floor afterwards. Just did a sloppy job, he cut my kitchen cupboards, and so they are sliced and diced in several places. I am finding my door frames were cut at the bottom but crooked and there are holes between the frame and the carpet & the transition piece, like he did not even grout properly. I am finding big holes of areas between my cupboard and tile, where there is a big gap, no grout to the tile. My son came home last night and stated that the grout was cracking, this is 3 weeks after he was supposedly done, what a krappy job. He also used 1 bag of group to tile 95 squ ft, for 2 tiny bathrooms, yet he used 1 bag of grout (different color) to grout the other 229 squ ft. Toilet was re-installed and is loose, I am a skinny lady and the only person using the master bathroom, so how does the toilet get loose within 3 days after he was supposedly complete and I was out of town for the July 4th weekend.
